Controlling Kontakt Volume

Is it possible to controll the volume of my Kontakt instruments from withing Dorico Pro. If I use the volume slider on the actual Kontakt instruments Dorico resets it to the default value every time playback starts from the beginning. I’ve tried the Dorico controller lanes but no joy - they don’t seem to have any effect on the volume regardles of the values. Is there an expression map I could use? Thanks, CD

With the lanes put cc7

If one sets up multiple channel output in the Kontakt player, it should feed into separate channels/tracks/faders of the Dorico Mixer, which is where one would set baseline volumes for various channels.
